Lyrics
The Mountain and the Valley and the River and the Lake


Verse 1:
As we walk that mortal highway from the cradle to the grave
Step lively, now, and keep your spirits high
There's no reason to delay
Cause we all know the way
And there's no turning back til we arrive

Verse 2:
The field and the forest and the beast and the blossom
The butterfly dancing in the sun
They'll console us as we pass
Cause they know that it won't last
And we'll all be together everyone

Chorus:
In the mountain and the valley and the river and the lake
The prairie rolling gently to the sky
The ocean that surrounds us
Where the earth finally found us
Swimming to a spark that caught our eye

Verse 3:
With our mother and our father and our sister and our brother
The wailing of the infant newly born
There'll be enemies and strangers
But we're safe from all the dangers
If our friends and lovers walk along

Chorus:
To the mountain and the valley and the river and the lake
The prairie rolling gently to the sky
The ocean that surrounds us
Where the earth finally found us
Swimming to a spark that caught our eye

Verse 5:
As we step into the twilight with the stars all a sparklin'
The moon glowing bright to light our way
As our body starts to go
And we shed our cloak of woe
We hope that again we'll have our day

Chorus:
In the mountain and the valley and the river and the lake
The prairie rolling gently to the sky
The ocean that surrounds us
Where the earth finally found us
Swimming to a spark that caught our eye

Outro:
In the mountain and the valley and the river and the lake
In the mountain and the valley and the river and the lake
In the mountain and the valley and the river and the lake
